Joe Biden, still struggling to appear relevant despite being about as easily overlooked as the star of that new “Invisible Man” movie, is continuing his embarrassing and barely coherent “competing coronavirus briefings” against President Trump from his house. In his latest dispatch from Cloud Cuckooland, Biden said Trump should “stop talking” and let medical experts speak. He mocked Trump’s hopes of getting the economy reopened by Easter and said, “This curve is going up and up and up because we did not act when we should have acted.”

Boy, where to begin? Obviously, with the fact that when Trump cut off travel from China back in January, acting quickly when he should have, Biden attacked him as a fearmonger and xenophobe. When Biden released a “plan” for dealing better with the crisis than Trump, most of it was stuff Trump had already done. In case Biden hasn’t noticed, Trump has assembled a team of the best doctors in America, and they are present and speak at all his press conferences. The leading voice among them, Dr. Anthony Fauci, has debunked the idea that Trump isn’t listening to them (apparently, Joe doesn’t keep up with the news; he’s also still repeating the debunked “fake news” that Trump called the virus a “hoax.” He was talking about the false media narrative parroted by Biden that he didn't take it seriously.)

And as for Trump’s Easter comment, it was just an expressed hope, not an ironclad policy directive. You’d think Biden would recognize what a “hope” is, since that’s what he and Obama got elected on. Maybe that’s why he assumes all hopes are meaningless.

Incidentally, Biden has also called for another “stimulus” bill that would somehow save us from the coronavirus by including the “Green New Deal,” thereby accomplishing the neat trick of saving the economy by passing a law that most sane economists believe would kill the economy.

Instead of telling Trump to stop talking, Joe should trying to talk. He’s become the living embodiment of Mark Twain’s rule that “it’s better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you’re a fool than open it and remove all doubt.”

    Where is this man's family? What kind of people allow their loved one to be put in a position that shows they clearly aren't well?

    As you said, where to begin? How about that sage advice we each probably heard from our mother: “If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all.” I doubt she had a situation like this in mind, but it fits.

    Biden's obvious problem, with a lucid thought lingering for a few seconds, makes me wonder who would actually be making the decisions if he did seriously get the vote. Terrifying.

    Seems to me that the Democrats want old Joe to keep talking because they all know it's the vice president who will be running the show. If old Joe acts a little bit strange now, it won't be questioned when he is removed from office after the election for mental problems. He was vice president under Obummer, maybe we will have favor repaid with an Obummer as his vice president. In reality, Joe would again be under Obummers instruction even if Michelle held the VP position. Lots of possibilities !
